Robby Benson

Did anyone see him on "The View" today? He looks great. Talked about what he's doing as of late (directing and producing episodic TV, writing books, wrote a musical that got good reviews), the heart condition that almost derailed his career early on, and how he's been married to Karla DeVito (who was in the audience) for 30 years, and that they're still madly in love. Almost made me pay less attention to today's guest co-host--my lover (in my head) Chris Cuomo. Almost.

I saw him at Pricilla's cofeee in Toluca Lake a few years ago, and he is even better looking in person. And that VOICE.

His eyes are so crystal blue, and his hair so thick and healthy looking. And the voice is SEXY.

Still gorgeous!

Agree with R2, I met him at an after party for something new he'd done for disney's Beauty and the Beast about a year and a half ago. His hair was pretty long and had a lot of grey in it, but he was still gorgeous and even better looking in person.

I was never impressed with him, but he looks better than he ever did before. Yum.

When I start getting jowls, I'm going to grow one of those Van Dykes, too.

I still can't pull off long hair.

I always thought he sounded like a reedy mushmouth in the 70s. I'm surprised people are saying he has a sexy voice now, though I admit I haven't heard him speak since his young adult acting heyday.

reedy mushmouths are sexy though...

He's a closeted homosexual too. I guess if you're religious it's a sin to be in the closet. Otherwise you can get up on TV and lie and it's OK

I heard he's a Jewish boy, yes?

Second, didn't he do the voice of the Beast in Disney's "Beauty and the Beast" in 1992?

Major gay face, even more so than Jewish looks.

But Zac Effron looks Jewish and he's not. But he does not have gay face

Isn't Zac Efron Jewish on one side?

Anyone remember the movie "One on One" from the 70's? Loved him and the guy who played his BFF. Annette O'Toole was the girlfriend and music was by Seals and Crofts.

He doesn't look so hot to me. He had quite the pot belly which that clingey long sleeve T did not conceal.

At least he doesn't have to wear a girdle, R16.

Boy Karla DeVito looked old.....they need hair dye and a nice shirt for Robby.

I know him (a bit). He's a warm, genuine guy. Devoted to his family. Very comfortable among us gays. He is Jewish and a real mensch. You can hear his voice squeak adorably on the OBC recording of THE ROTHSCHILDS.

[quote]Isn't Zac Efron Jewish on one side?

No his grandfather was a quarter Jewish and since Jews run the line through the mothers, if you're mother's not a Jew you're not. So Zac's grandmother was not Jewish and his grand father was only a quarter Jew.

He's barely a Jew at all.

So that means William's kid will be the first Jewish ruler of England?

R15, I loved that guy who played his roommate and inadvertently fucked him up by giving him uppers and downers; loved it when he carried him into the shower.

I don't think that actor worked much after that movie, but he was perfectly cast as that big buddy many want as their college roommate.

Whoever said Zac Efron's grandfather was "only a quarter Jew"? Zac's grandfather was (is still possibly?) 100% Jewish, the son of Polish Jewish immigrants. So Zac Efron is "25% Jewish" for lack of a better way to put it.

Yes, Robby, who is 100% Jewish himself, does look like Zac. There are a lot of Jews who have or had this look, like Logan Lerman, Tony Curtis, Alden Ehrenreich, etc., who are all fully Jewish, too.

Kate m isn't Jewish.
